Members of America’s mainstream establishment press continue to prove that they’re nothing but activists and propagandists for the Democrat Party.

On Wednesday, multiple verified blue checkmark “journalists” affiliated with high-profile outlets including Politico, Vox, CNN, and The Washington Post blatantly smeared Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert.

During President Donald Trump’s second impeachment that afternoon, Gohmert delivered a speech from the House floor pushing back on the dubious Democrat argument that the president’s rhetoric was to blame for last week’s U.S. Capitol riot.

To prove the illegitimacy of this argument, the Republican lawmaker cited quotes from the very Democrat leading the impeachment efforts, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“Here’s a quote: ‘I just don’t even know why there aren’t more — why there aren’t uprisings all over the country, and maybe there will be,'”  he said.

Pelosi uttered these exact words during her weekly press briefing on June 14th, 2018 amid the pseudo-scandal over so-called “child separations.”

Listen:

Over the course of the next year, numerous “uprisings” did occur, including one involving a left-wing extremist firebombing a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention center in Washington State.

Following the firebombing, then-acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan blamed the rhetoric” of “elected leaders” for radicalizing the perpetrator, Willem Van Spronsen, an Antifa extremist who’d echoed the exact rhetoric of some Democrats in a manifesto he’d written prior to the attack.

The mainstream press of course ignored all of this, as if her rhetoric was perfectly OK. Yet when Gohmert simply quoted Pelosi’s words Wednesday, this time they paid attention.

But instead of acknowledging his point about the double standard at play, they chose to further exacerbate the double standard either by pure incompetence or by purposefully and maliciously twisting his quote by acting as if they were his words, not those of Pelosi.

CNN:

Law & Crime:

Vox:

Aaron Blake of The Washington Post and Eugene Daniels of Politico also peddled the lie, though they at least had the decency to later delete their tweets:

CNN’s Asha Rangappa, a known propagandist, has predictably made no attempt to correct her error, proving once again that CNN is nothing but “Democrat State Media.”

This, of course, is the mainstream establishment press in a nutshell, which is why they’re held in such disdain by a majority of the American public.

Yes, even real journalists make errors, but the errors of the mainstream press’s so-called “journalists” always smear, malign, and hurt Republicans — and never Democrats.

Every single time:

There’s a reason for this, according to award-winning former mainstream journalist turned non-establishment journalist, Lara Logan.

“[I]n this country, 85 percent of journalists are registered Democrats. So that’s just a fact. Most journalists are left or liberal or Democrat, or whatever word you want to give it. … [W]e’ve become political activists in a sense, and some could argue propagandists,” she said in an interview two years ago.

Indeed.

Dovetailing back to Gohmert’s remarks, he also had another quote from Pelosi that he shared.

“Sadly, the domestic enemies of our voting system and honoring our Constitution are right at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with their allies in Congress,” she’d said just months later in August of last year in response to the GOP’s opposition to universal mail-in-voting.

That sounds awfully incendiary, though it’s just a sliver of the hateful bile Democrats have spewed about their Republican colleagues.

“We were [even] called ‘enemies’ of the state,” Gohmert pointed out.

“Those were all quotes from our speaker. Now on our side, we didn’t take those to be impeachable because we didn’t believe she surely meant that.”

Listen:

He concluded, “But by the Democrats taking this action, you’re telling me, ‘No, when we say those, we actually mean to incite violence.’ That’s what this action is saying.”

Exactly.
